The Culver City Friends of the Library are delighted to announce that the long-awaited Library Centennial Renovation Celebration Project is about to commence. The Culver City Julian Dixon Library will be closed from Monday, April 21, for one year, for a much-needed update. Part of the project will include additional electrical outlets, new lighting, new paint, new carpeting and new furniture throughout the library. A new circulation and information desk with new self-check machines will enable the staff to better serve the needs of the patrons.
During the closure, a temporary facility will be available for limited services at the site of the Mayme Clayton Library (across the street from Vet’s Auditorium) at 4130 Overland Avenue in Culver City. Hours are listed below. Services provided will include holds placement, holds pick up and a small browsing collection, including children’s books. Public computer use and Internet service will not be available.
Access to the Culver City Julian Dixon Library and parking lot will also not be available. Patrons will need to make book donations and return library books at the temporary site. The closest full-service county libraries are the Lloyd Taber-Marina del Rey Library at 4533 Admiralty Way in Marina del Rey and the View Park Library at 3854 West 54th St. in Los Angeles. The LA city libraries that are most convenient are the Mar Vista library at 12006 Venice Boulevard, the Palms/Rancho Park branch at 2920 Overland Avenue and the Playa Vista library at 6400 Playa Vista Dr.
Students who have used the library as an after school homework center, may want to explore the possibilities at their individual school sites and at the Culver City Teen Center, located at 4153 Overland Avenue.
We realize that this will be less convenient for our loyal library users, but we are certain that it will be well worth the effort and we will all enjoy the improvements for years to come. Thank you for your support, and for your patience. We will keep you posted during the library closure as things progress.
Thank you for your patience and support.
